Celebrities stir up memories in Maggie’s ‘Recipes to Remember’ cookbook.
Charity cookbook featuring well-known celeb recipes and personal stories launches at Cheltenham Literature Festival
A NEW charity cookbook, brimming with nostalgic recipes from famous faces, is set to
launch at The Times & Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival on October 7th.
The collaborative cookbook, Recipes to Remember, is an eclectic collection of recipes
and memories in aid of Maggie’s Centres, gifted by well-known personalities such as Raymond Blanc, Kirsty Allsopp and Victoria Derbyshire.
Compiled by creative dream team, Kelly James, from Shadowplay Design, Phil James,
of Shadowplay Media, and Natasha Willmore, from Culpepper & Co, Recipes to
Remember champions the link between fond memories and favourite foods. Featuring
more than 60 mouth-watering recipes from hearty roasts to creative cakes, the book
can be pre-ordered now at maggiescookbook.com and is priced at £20.
Inspired by their own personal journeys, Kelly and Natasha felt compelled to help the charity that helps so many others who have been affected by cancer.
Natasha lost her stepfather to cancer three years ago and her family has been hugely helped by Maggie’s in Cheltenham.
She said: “A cancer journey is so much more than just hospital visits and treatment. The impact on self-esteem, finances, relationships, travel, juggling family life and personal life, and enjoyment of food and taste all need to be supported too.
“When you walk through the door of a Maggie’s, it is an environment that puts you at peace, and welcomes you. We want to raise awareness of Maggie’s Centres across the UK in order to help them continue their inspirational and life-changing work. Their centres offer cancer sufferers and their families a beautiful place to find some peace and understanding.”
The cookbook combines scrumptious recipes and warm-hearted memories such as Tom Kerridge’s ‘My Mum’s Sausage Roast’ that reminds him of growing up and Gabby Logan’s ‘Orange Chicken’ that’s a firm family favourite and great for warming up Autumn evenings.
The Recipes to Remember cookbook will be showcased by Dr Sarah Jarvis and Ryan Riley from Life Kitchen at The Times & Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival at 8pm on October 7th in front of an audience of 200 people.
The book is further supported by the Recipes to Remember website that invites members of the public to share their own mouth-watering memories.
